A Focused Microarray to Study Human Mitochondrial and Nuclear Gene Expression

A focused microarray (huMITOchip) was developed to study alterations of human mitochondrial and nuclear gene expression in health and disease. The huMITOchip contains 4,774 probe sets identical to the Affymetrix U 133 plus 2.0 chip covering genes affecting mitochondrial, lipid, cytokine, apoptosis, and muscle function transcripts. Unlike other gene chips, the huMITOchip has 51 probe sets that interrogate 37 genes of the mitochondrial genome.
